Visiting Singapore

Hi Mr Prasad,

I will be visiting Singapore on my vacation. From there I want to go to Thailand by train. Please suggest me if it will be better to apply for a Thai visa here only (india) before departure or I can easily get a visa on arrival there (Thailand).

thanks & regards,

Sanjeev

Just in case you have no idea, the train ride to the border of Thailand just right after Malaysia might take more than 17 hours. It might take more than a day to reach Bangkok.

The busses are faster but you MIGHT have to transfer at Haadyai if you are going to Bangkok.

Tickets for busses can be obtained mainly from Golden Mile, near Bugis, but its actually nearer to Lavender MRT tho.
